...on the other hand, I'm also tired of the rehashed cliches, self-serving excuses and rose-colored glasses that Regier keeps repeating each year and see no value in another PC just to hit the "rewind" button on promises and excuses made in the past. Plus, we know all of the buttons that the WGR and TBN media would try to press.

Black said on the radio show this morning that when he first started doing the weekly appearance, Simon let him see the screen of upcoming callers - Black told WGR to take that away so he could respond openly and honestly to all callers on a spontaneous, 1-on-1 format.

In the first segment, the first caller ("Carl") got on Black right away by asking what he thinks Regier or Ruff will do differently going forward that they didn't do the past 15 seasons. In the second segment, another caller came on and blasted Black for pumping up his ego with the weekly radio show just to feed fans excuses.

Of the 3 TBN regulars, he's certainly the one that tries hardest to stay objective and not promote a personal agenda or campaign. However, he's never stepped up to the level that I thought Tim Graham elevated TBN's coverage to when he was the regular beat writer covering the Sabres.
